The South Carolina Production Fund
South Carolina Film Commission
In February 2011, the South Carolina Film Commission will award a maximum of
two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000.00) to the University of South Carolina
and Trident Technical College to collaborate with media professionals to produce
a short dramatic film. Each school has the ability to receive up to one hundred
thousand dollars ($100,000.00) each for their collaborative project.
To partner with USC, you must submit a script and project overview to USC’s
Principal Investigator. No more than 20 scripts will be accepted. Of the 20, three
will be chosen. Submission deadline is September 18, 2009. If your project is
one of the three, you must complete the comprehensive Production Fund
Application for Finalists package described in Section II for review by a panel
of film professionals called the Production Fund Review Panel who will choose
one single grant award winner.

This is a two step process: First submit a script and project overview (described
on page 5) by September 18th, 2009. Three projects for each school will become
finalists. Finalists must complete the application package described in Section II
and deliver to the SC Film Commission by December 8th, 2009.
Upon award in February, the colleges and producing teams must work with a film
professional to determine the final budget and timeline. The project will be
broken down using professional scripting and budgeting software such as Movie
Magic and a producer’s workshop training session for South Carolinians will be
held reviewing the process.
September 18, 2009: USC will accept up to 20 script/proposals. They will
review these proposals for the next month and choose three acceptable
scripts/projects. Submit to Susan Hogue HOGUES@mailbox.sc.edu

What is this?
This blog will be a resource for recording thoughts, ideas, schemes, and anything else that develops on the way to forming a unified voice and center for the Charleston arts community. Everything presented here is subject to change.
How does this work?
There will be a designated set of authors who will be responsible for posting topics for discussion, to begin with anyone may comment on a discussion topic or suggest a new post but only the authors may post new topics (this is mostly to avoid spamming and over posting). In time this can develop into an online wiki or discussion board style web page of information and ideas, but at the moment a blog is the most direct, immediate and open way to track the development of the ideas being developed. if you have a suggestion or want to post please send email to
